Hydrangea Bridal Bouquets

In recent years, hydrangea bridal bouquets have become a top choice for wedding flowers. Hydrangea blooms look great on their own, but also add interest to mixed arrangements and bouquets.

They have a fresh, elegant look that doesn't require much work to make them wedding perfect, which makes them a favorite among brides who aren't working with a florist.

Though hydrangeas are versatile flowers that can work with other blooms of all shapes and sizes, there are some classic pairings you might want to choose as accompanying wedding flowers.

Hydrangea arrangements look stunning with cascading dendrobium orchids, especially for Hawaiian-inspired weddings. Some other common pairs for hydrangeas include calla and stargazer lilies, roses, baby's breath and fillers such as ferns and ivy.
